Light Swallowing Darkness

We are pushing forward aren’t we folks? No hanging back in that place called fear? Good. I ache inside every time I am on the receiving end of a conversation where someone is giving their words over to confirm fears rather than hopes. I try with all that I am to steer the conversation in positive directions but there are times when all I can do is pray silently against the darkness trying to swallow the other person.

I once read something I have never been able to forget and yet it was such a simple teaching. If one has a window of light open into the night, the darkness does not come in but rather the light goes out to swallow the darkness.

Luke 11:35   See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness
